captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with russ mitchell. >> mitchell: good evening f you purchased gasoline in the past few days you know the story. the price has gone up, keeps goinging up, and shows no signs of stopping. since the turmoil in libya broke out in mid-february, the price of crude oil jumped roughly 20% to more than $104 a barrel pushing up prices at the pump as well. today the white house said it may step in to help. sheryl attkisson in washington has the latest. >> reporter: it's the strongest suggestion yet that unrest in the middle east might leave the obama

administration to tap the nation's oil reserves. the news came from the white house chief of staff. >> the issue of the reserves is one we're considering. i think there is no one without doubts that the uncertainty in the middle east right now has caused tremendous increase in the last number of weeks. >> reporter: gas prices averaged $3.51 a gallon nationwide, up 15 cents in the past week, 789 cents over a year ago. >> 65 dollars for gas is pretty unbelievable. >> maybe it's $5 when it gets to that point i won't want to drive any more. so we'll see. >> i drive for a living. so it definitely affects my job. so i'm currently looking another job because of this. >> reporter: the u.. stored supply of oil called the strategic petroleum reserve contains 75:-- barrels. those that oil want oil relief say it would cause spiking gas prices to an economic recovery isn't threatened.
6:14 pm
after hurricane katrina 30 million barrels were released. oil prices dropped 3.7%. during the first gulf war, 34 million barrels were released and in one day, prices dropped 33.4%. but some economists say the oil reserves should be saved for a true emergency and this isn't it. >> i think it's premature to ep up the strategic petroleum reserve. i don't think it's going to make a big difference with respect to prices. and i think at this point we can digest these prices. >> reporter: maybe so, but it doesn't go down easy. >> as a students's kind of tough to pay the bills and pay these kind of gas prices. >> reporter: right now the average price of gas is still $61 cents-- 61 cents below the record set in july 2008 of 4.11 a gallon. >> mitchell: sheryl attkisson in washington, thank you. the pain at the pump is having a huge affect on businesses, especially small ones. seth doane has the story of

6:20 pm
by city, qaddafi troops used helicopter gunships to attack rebels. rebel forceses have repelled the counteroffensive midway between triply and his hometown. and 6,000 people are now estimated to have died since fighting began. mark phillips is in trip ollie with the latest. >> reporter: the qaddoffee government declared victory in tripoli and if seemed like the town came out to celebrate. people were told government forces were on the counteroffensive. wiping out rebel gains of the past week. the decoration of victory may be premature or it may be wishful thinking but in this kind of crowd, with this kind of qaddafi support, it's taken as unquestionable fact. the facts on the ground, though, are a lot less clear. at the furthest point of the rebel advance from the east, a government offensive did push back the rag tag rebel
6:21 pm
forces. >> myself, i was like three kilometerss away, like which is less than two mileses away from the border. and what we get is sideways and bombs all over. >> reporter: they retreated in disarray. but formed up again in the oil port, which they still hold. in other towns, closer to tripoli forces loyal to qaddafi used tanks, artillery and warplanes to attack rebel positions. again, government claims of victory are dismissed by rebels who say they beat back the attacks and even captured government vehicles in the process. there's a propaganda battle being fought here as well. and its starts young. the qaddafi regime must appear to be victorious and in control or it starts to look vulnerable. yet even in this tripoli crowd, gathered to celebrate the governments's announced gains, there are quiet voices of doubt. on the fringe of the crowd,
6:22 pm
a man approaches. he doesn't want to be identified but speaks away from our camera. most people even here, he says, don't really believe the government line. >> reporter: what chance do you give this rebellion? >> 99%. >> reporter: 99%. >> we're very hopeful. we have a just cause. we have a just cause. there's nothing morning powerful as an idea that the time has come for it. >> reporter: and you think the time has come for this. >> yes. it is time for the people. >> reporter: moammar qaddafi made a surprise appearance at green square in tripoli this evening at the same time as the libyans were offeringing a new reason as to why they have been unable to dislodge the rebelses from the towns they hold. they say the rebels, they call them terrorist gangs, have been using the local populations as human shields. we have though really is a stalemate where the rebel forces have been unable to
6:23 pm
push forward further and the pro qaddafi forces have been unable to push them back significantly. russ? >> mitchell: mark phillips in tripoli, thank you. >> back in this country, the national weather service has issued a flood watch through monday morning for much of the northeast. it is all part of a severe storm system that has already dumped a lot of rain on a big part of the country and delivered that deadly tornado that ripped through rain, louisiana. we'll have more after a break. e radio. gecko: kate from mill valley, it's all yours. kate: well, i'm shopping for my first car. gecko: nice! i do hope you'll choose geico and save a good bit of cash... curtis: what color is the car? i bet you'd look great in a blue car. kate: no...actually, i'm torn between a fuel-injected inline-6 and a higher torque turbo diesel. gecko: that's quite a quandary! umm, i mean of course you could save either way. curtis: yeah but is one of them blue? cause i'd go with the blue one. anncr: geico. 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance. anncr: geico. 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance. osteoporosis treatment-- no big deal. so i have to wait up to an hour

6:27 pm
>> mitchell: so his home was brought here to state street alongside 21 others. homes saved from landfills, homes that will help save a neighborhood. it's the work of a nonprofit called builders of hope. >> this is a street that was plagued with drugs and prostitution and gangs. and in order to go in and truly revitalize the community, you need to have a big stake. and create an enclave. >> mitchell: she says it's a win, win, scott saves in the cost of demolition and gets a huge tax break. builders of hope moves the home and makes it affordable for a low income family. >> when that day came that i got the key for this house, i was just-- i mean i was just so blesd. >> mitchell: before lisa covington moved into the state street village a year ago, she lived in public housing like her mother and grandmother before her. raleigh's average home price is $177,000. her house cost $135,000. and the city grant made it even more affordable. >> i have a home, something
